HEFCE closed at the end of March 2018. The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.
The HEFCE domain - www.hefce.ac.uk - will continue to function until September 2018. At this point we will close the site entirely and all its information will only be available from the National Web Archive.
Following feedback from users the Register has been extended and improved. We have made the following changes:
We will continue to develop the HEFCE Register, and will work in partnership with users, the sector and other regulators to do so. To provide feedback send comments to email@example.com.
The HEFCE Register is an online searchable tool showing regulatory information about higher education providers that have particular relationships to Government in England: for example, whether a provider is publicly funded or delivers courses where students (if eligible) are able to apply for financial support. It shows how these providers are regulated and where to find more information about each one.
It sits alongside the Operating Framework for higher education which describes the framework of regulation designed to provide confidence in the overall system of English higher education.
